Asset Based Community Driven (ABCD) Community Engagement and Development Workshop

Monday 5th – Tuesday 6th December, Bundoora

Discover community strengths to address problems and realise collective dreams!

ABCD is a powerful approach to community engagement and development that focuses on abilities and potential, rather than problems and deficits, by discovering and mobilising the resources that are already present in a community.

Gain practical tools to assist communities to help themselves and others.

By building relationships and creating the space for opportunities to emerge, community members become powerful and are more in control of their own decision-making!  The key principles will demonstrate how ABCD ensures an inclusive community process to discover and mobilise community strengths!

Build an effective strategy to create strong and inclusive communities.

Increasingly, ABCD has been widely adopted as an effective strategy for helping to create strong and inclusive communities. ABCD is a strengths-based approach to working with communities, which emphasises community leadership, and helps build relationships.
